Dr. Munir Kakish, long-term FCA missionary from Living Hope Church (Elk Grove Village, IL) will lead the communion service from Israel on Good Friday (April 2, 2021) for One Body One Blood. Believers from around the world will unite to commemorate the greatest gift of all time and the only hope for mankind—the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The one-hour event will be broadcast on YouTube at 4:00 PM, April 2 (Israel time) and will include worship, testimonies, the Word, and sharing the elements of the Lord’s Table together. Besides leading participants in taking the elements of the Lord’s Table, Kakish will speak about the significance of communion.
One Body One Blood aims to gather a million believers together online, Christians from every nation, so they can experience communion together and be inspired to acts of service that will lead people to Christ. Several individuals from Bethel Assembly, an FCA church in Fosston, Minnesota, have been working diligently to spread the word about this unique event. More information and free registration are available at https://onebody-oneblood.org/ .
Munir Kakish was born in Jordan in 1947. When his father died, his family faced great financial hardships and was forced to place him in a Christian boys’ home in Ramallah, West Bank. At age 10, he dedicated his life to Christ. Even as a young boy, Munir felt called into the ministry, so after high school he made his way to America where he finished a BRE in Christian Education, B.A. in communications, a Master’s degree from Wheaton, as well as a Doctorate of Ministry Degree.
Along with his wife, Sharon, Munir has served the Lord in the Holy Land since 1978. Beside founding a home for needy children in Ramallah, they have worked diligently helping children and sharing the news of Jesus Christ. Munir simultaneously serves as pastor of two churches—one in Ramallah and the other in Ramla, Israel. For 13 years he has served as President of the Council of Local Evangelical Churches in the Holy Land and as vice-president of the coalition between the Jordanian, Palestinian, and Arab Evangelical Churches in Galilee.
Another event speaker will be Dr. Ramesh Richard, founder and president of RREACH, as well as a professor at Dallas Theological Seminary, to be a global spokesman for the Lord Jesus Christ. Ramesh travels the world clarifying the message of the Bible through lectures and preaching with audiences ranging from non-Christian intellectuals in university settings to poor pastors in rural areas. He founded TOPIC (Trainers of Pastors International Coalition) to champion non-formal pastoral training worldwide. In 2016, he convened the first Global Proclamation Congress for Pastoral Trainers, in Bangkok, Thailand.
